Plans to build 24 single-family homes, eight twin-townhomes and 14 senior apartments in Guilderland near the high school are one step closer to construction.
The final site plan review for the proposed Black Creek Run Country Hamlet development, off Depot and School roads, was approved by the Guilderland town planning board last Wednesday.
Plans for Black Creek Run were originally submitted in the mid 2000s and went through several changes until 2015. After a seven-year hiatus, Rosetti Acquisitions reintroduced the review of the project in 2022.
The proposed project will now go to the town board for approval. A public hearing is expected to be scheduled next month.
The development would be across 38.4 acres and include a connection to Guilderland High School across the street.
Plans include constructing a new road into the future development at 6250 Depot Road. The townhomes and senior apartments would be built closest to Depot Road, and the single-family homes would be set further back toward School Road, ending in a cul-de-sac.
Guilderland town planner Kenneth Kovalchik said several acres of land that were going to be conveyed to a property owner with a home abutting the development will instead go to the town. At some point, he said the parks department may consider adding trails and a gazebo or seating area along Black Creek.
Rosetti Acquisitions is affiliated with Rosetti Properties, which owns and manages nearly 1,000 apartments in Latham, Colonie, Guilderland, North Greenbush, Saratoga and Queensbury.
